This is a discussion on 1983 Yamaha XV920 Cafe Racer within the Project Builds forums, part of the Caferacer.net Forums category; Ergos are kinda extreme. But the bike is looking nice and clean. Upgrade the shock and forks, put on a fork brace and I'd ride ...

Upgrade the shock and forks, put on a fork brace and I'd ride it on a nice day...
Why anyone would hack off the back section of the frame is beyond me. I'm glad you kept it intact.
Sure the rear exhaust is far enough from the rear tire?
How's the exhaust look from the other side?

Rear wheel is on place finally! And it fits nicely
1. First of all - rear swing arm axis - as I wrote before I needed to make a new one. Here it is.
2. Next I fitted all rear parts, all went well. Just some nervous about fitting the rear wheel as its a custom spoke wheel made with XV 535 hub... but it fitted almost plug&play. As the hub is a bit wider then the original one, I need to make some mods to wheel axis - its a bit wider in the end and I need to make this part a bit shorter, so that the axis will go deeper into hob and will come out on the other side. Its a matter of about 15 mm max. Will take care of it in next days.
And here it is:
Well I reckon that looks top notch mate!! I really like that Matt finish .. is that powder coated?
Axle is a part, axis is any line used as a fixed reference.
I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.
Looking pretty tidy. Well done.
K&N air filter in place. Needed to use original mounting parts, all fits perfect and you don't see these plastic elements, all is hidden.
